What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are hyaluronic acids, which are naturally found in our skin. They play an important role in hydrating and volumizing the skin. As we age, our skin loses its collagen and hyaluronic acid; with the help of dermal fillers, we can slow down the process of aging and losing the collagen.
Most dermal fillers are infused with lidocaine, which helps to minimize the discomfort of the treatment. Some of the FDA approved fillers include:
- Juvederm products
- Restylane products
You can use dermal fillers to smooth the wrinkles and boost the face or body parts volume.

Q: What are the Pre/Post-treatment cares?
A: You need to tell your injector:
